I was first inspired to create my own prayer space at home about 5 years ago when dialoguing with people of other faiths about prayer and ritual. I saw the need for it to express in a more deep and intimate way my Catholic Christian faith to actually have a symbol of a living prayer in my living space.
The picture above is my latest altar, and everything is symbolic for my life right now and when my son Christian is back here we will together work on a new altar for Advent.
Every month or so; especially at the change of new liturgical seasons, or when some major transitions are happening in my life I add new color and rearrange the space. Some things get added over time as I purchase them or receive as gifts, like the crucifix I got this past summer inspired reading the life of Pope St. John Paul II. Some other things you might notice are my baptismal candle or the 2 pictures from my first communion in the back... Maybe you might even notice the kneeling Iron Man on the left. (I wrote a story about this quite some time ago on my blog. You can check that HERE. Know that Iron Man has been on this altar ever since.)
I pray you all may be inspired to create your own personal dedications.

The Symbol's MUSIC :
These are my thoughts . . . My Beliefs . . . My Actions . . . Everything I do. This is the documentation of my quest towards creating more unity in the community by authentic #LOVE.

But now, as I have matured in my understanding as "The Symbol" and no longer Brandon Feel-X Morel you can continue my journey with me here.
